Rapid Ascent Big Kayak Test
In July last year, about 30 kayak enthusiasts from around Australia gathered at Geelong Canoe Club on the Barwon River to undertake what is believed to be the biggest test of kayaks ever undertaken anywhere in the world. Eight ÒspeedÓ testers and eight ÒcomfortÓ testers spent a whole weekend paddling 41 different craft, covering the categories of K1/TK1, Doubles, Multisport, Surf Ski, Sit-on-top and Sea Kayak. With assistance from the University of Canberra and the Australian University of Sport, the major project generated a massive amount of scientific and subjective data. This has finally been distilled into a concise 132-page report and uploaded to the Rapid Ascent website for you to download at no cost.
